Hiring an Interior Decorator can be one of the most practical things you can do for your home.
An Interior Decorator will work with you, the client, to solve decorating dilemmas and challenges, so that you can bring out your home’s potential and best features while creating a unique, innovative and livable space which reflects your individual taste, personality and style.
Using an Interior Decorator does not have to be costly, in fact using a decorator can stop you from making costly mistakes. And in the long run, clients can end up saving both money and time. You don’t need a big budget to hire a decorator or to have a beautiful home
Most people have good taste, but are too busy to source exactly what they would love for their homes. They are limited to resources available to the public, whereas using a decorator enables clients to have access to products not available to the general public, products that have one of a kind designs and a custom look. Decorators also have access to hundreds of choices in all areas of home décor, which in turn offers the client unique and exclusive designs. Decorators have the technical knowledge required to bring about great design. It is extremely important for clients to be informed about the products they select with respect to care required or the ease of use.
With so much variety these days, the search for anything new can become very daunting and in the end the client can just “settle” for something as they are frustrated with the amount of “foot work” involved in selecting the perfect products. A decorator works in partnership with the client to offer innovative and desirable results suited to the client and that maximize the client’s home’s potential. A decorator gives guidance, and the services provided can involve as much or as little of the client’s time as the client desires.
A decorator has no emotional tie to the home; allowing for objectivity when making decorating choices. A decorator meets with the client, gets to know the type of style they want; their likes and dislikes in home décor and their lifestyle, by asking detailed questions; and then responds to their needs by beginning to source products to present. Usually there are several choices and finally the client along with the decorator will zero in on the look they want. The decorator continues to source the selections and can arrange for trades people to do the home remodel. The decorator can also do the overall project management of the redecorating or redesign.
